Helping Children in crisis,
one bag of love at a time
What We Do
For 14 years, Bags of Love has supported children of Lane County suffering from abuse, neglect, poverty, or homelessness.
A Bag of Love provides every child we connect with the essentials: clothing, toiletries, toys, books, school supplies, and a handmade quilt or fleece blanket. For a child in crisis, a Bag of Love delivers support and comfort at the time he or she is most vulnerable.
In 2008, our founding year, we distributed 25 Bags of Love to children in need. By the end of 2021, that number had increased to more than 3,400. Since our inception, more than 23,000 local kids have received a Bag of Love.
Bags of Love exists because of the support of more than 165 volunteers in 2021 alone who contributed more than 28,000 hours of their time to sew quilts, sort donations, put together bags, and keep the warehouse running.
